about this item

Samuel Scott's 3 volumes, the product of more than twenty years scholarship, provide a detailed yet engaging history of the Moors in Spain and the legacy of their learning in the wider countries of Europe. The author relates events at both the level of the royal court and administration, and the wider population, thereby offering a far fuller account of developments than is to be found in other works. Scott was especially concerned to provide a history that separated fact from fantasy and which revealed the achievements of the Moorish empire and its influence and impact on Western scholarship and progress. In more than 2000 pages the author covers all aspects of Moorish culture, conquest, administration, commerce, arts, science, laws, cities, crafts and much more. It is now made available once more, with a new introduction by leading authority on Hispano-Arabic culture, Richard Hitchcock.
